The Times - Palazzo Fiuggi review

04/09/2021, The Times, Susan d'Arcy

Spa editor Susan d'Arcy reviews Palazzo Fiuggi, the Italian wellness retreat where you can eat cake. Read below for her review.

"One of Europe’s hottest hotel openings this year is a fancy spa in a flamboyant Italian palace that promises to impart the secrets of weight loss and healthy ageing. So far, so spa. But here’s where it gets interesting: I will not, I am told, be subjected to a miserable diet of bean sprouts and fresh air. Instead I will breakfast on cake, enjoy pasta at lunch and devour four-course dinners — all devised by the chef behind Rome’s only three-Michelin-starred restaurant. Sceptical old me wonders if Ryan Gosling might also be on hand to place my napkin, because this sounds suspiciously like La-La land.

Palazzo Fiuggi is an art nouveau beauty an hour outside the Italian capital. Its wedding-cake architecture is enhanced by a spectacular hilltop location, overlooking Fiuggi’s medieval old town and romantic wooded landscapes."


Healing Holidays can arrange four nights’ full board from £2,599pp, including flights, transfers and treatments.
